Cheryl McPhilimy leads a team of stellar communicators who help clients shape and sharpen their message and who coach them in how to deliver the message with confidence and clarity.

The firm works with CEOs, entrepreneurs and content experts as well as beginners who are just getting their feet wet with public speaking and media interviews. Cheryl, a strategist and communications personal trainer for CEOs and key executives who are the public voice of their organizations, founded the firm in 1995 out of a desire to put her insider’s knowledge of the newsroom to work for clients. The firm quickly moved beyond simply media pitching to a client-centered focus on developing the message—and the messenger.

“I’ve come to rely on the McPhilimy team to help my team prepare for events and interviews. What we are going to say and how we are going to say it. When you only have one chance to get it right, you need to make a smart investment in practice and preparation.”

Executive director, international association
